With the recently-released Remedy 27.5 taking on more aggressive All-Mountain to enduro duties, it left a conspicuous long-travel 29er hole in Trek’s lineup. Retailers, riders, and MTB editors were all skeptical that Trek would walk away from Remedy 29’s popularity among riders, enduro racers, and media. Trek didn’t. Rather, theye raised the bar for all long travel 29ers with an all-new Slash featuring 29” wheels for a new focus on both speed and capability.

New Slash is built for one thing: top-tier enduro racing. With that in mind, Trek designed it around the fastest-rolling 29” wheel size, and 150mm of rear travel for the best balance of capability and efficiency. Like the new Fuel EX & Remedy, Slash gets a Straight Shot downtube with Knock Block frame defense for DH-like frame stiffness at trail-bike weight. Staying true to its beat-the-clock focus, Slash comes in carbon only, with two complete bike models, as well as a frameset. Enduro-minded spec including reservoir shocks, travel-adjust forks, 1x-drivetrains, and SuperEnduro tires make both Slash models ready to slay some stages right out of the box.

Expect to see the new Slash 29er in action under Trek’s top enduro racers this summer, in. This new, category-defining halo product will help set you and Trek apart from the rest of the industry.

  • 2017 Trek Slash 9.8 29- £4400.00
  • 2017 Trek Slash 9.9 29- £6000.00
  • 2017 Trek Slash 9.9 RSL Frameset £2900.00

The all new Trek Slash 29er will have a well deserved place in our well stocked demo fleet. Looking to book a demo or pre-order a frame or full bike feel free to call on  01694 781515 or email will@blazingbikes.co.uk

Custom build- The new 29er Trek Slash 9.9 RSL frame set will be another excellent addition to our super strong custom build line up. If you looking for a quote on a Trek custom build feel free to get in touch.

What’s new with 2017 Slash?

With the new 2017 Remedy moving deeper into All-Mountain territory, new Slash sets its sights squarely on Enduro racing. With that in mind, we designed it around a carbon frame with the fastest-rolling wheel size. All 2017 Slash models use 29” wheels with Boost110 & Boost148 hub spacing. Rear travel moves to 150mm for the right balance of capability and efficiency. Both models get Enduro-minded 130mm/160mm forks which offer a better climbing position in the 130mm setting, and more confident descending in the 160mm setting.

Like the Fuel EX & Remedy, Slash gets a Straight Shot downtube with Knock Block frame defense for DH-worthy frame stiffness with no added weight. It also gets our extra-versatile Control Freak cable routing system to tie it all together.

How many Slash bike models are there?

Two. Both the Slash 9.8 and Slash 9.9 RSL share the same race-ready, full-carbon, 1x-specific frame.

What does Race Shop Limited mean?

Race Shop Limited, or RSL models are built with a parts spec that meets the demands of our top-level Enduro racers, including extra suspension adjustments, a Rapid Drive rear hub, and the new SRAM X01 Eagle 1×12 drivetrain.

Is Slash available as a frameset?

Yes. Slash is available as a frameset, which includes a Fox Factory Float X2 shock, Knock Block headset, and Line Pro 35mm stem.

What are the available sizes for Slash?

All Slash models are available in 15.5, 17.5, 19.5, and 21.5.

While most other long-travel 29ers suffer from design constraints that don’t allow for a Small frame size, Slash benefits from Trek’s decade of 29er experience, allowing us to offer a fast, great-handling 15.5” long-travel 29er.

Why doesn’t the new Slash use Full Floater?

We developed Full Floater years ago to address performance constraints associated with the air shocks that were available at that time. Since then, mountain bike shocks have evolved. More dynamic and responsive dampers, along with more refined air springs like EVOL and Debonair, offer the performance benefits our engineers sought to achieve with Full Floater.

Using a fixed lower shock mount opens up the lower frame area, giving us more opportunity to design stronger, stiffer frames and chainstays. This also gives us more flexibility to accommodate larger, more capable shocks. All of these effects are experienced most dramatically on long travel bikes, like the Slash.

Then why is Full Floater still on new Fuel EX and Remedy?

Full Floater works great on short to mid-travel bikes where engineering requirements are not so challenging. The demanding combination of design requirements – frame stiffness, bigger 29” wheel size, long travel, and fitting piggyback shocks– of the new Slash 29 presented the greatest opportunity to incorporate a new direction in suspension layout.

What front derailleurs work with the new frame?
None. The carbon chainstay is 1x only, which allowed our engineers to optimize stiffness and weight, as well as keep the length down to 435mm.

Is Slash compatible with other aftermarket shocks?

Yes. Slash uses new standard metric shock sizing (230×57.5mm).

Does Slash use a G2 fork?

Yes. It’s a 29er, and we know that our G2 Geometry with a 51mm offset fork still makes for the best 29er handling at any speed, on any terrain.

What Mino Link position is standard out of the box?

All MY17 full suspension bikes (EXCEPT Top Fuel and Session) will ship with the Mino Link in the High (steeper) setting. This gives Slash a headtube angle of 65.6 out of the box.

Is the new frame compatible with 27.5 Plus wheels and tires? 27.5?

No. We designed Slash around 29” wheels and tires for maximum speed. Running any other wheel/tire size will adversely affect handling and speed.

What is the max tire size for Slash frames?

29 x 2.6”

Stanton Bikes- Next Gen- Sherpa- Switchback- Slackline- Frames- Dealer- Stockist- Demo- Custom Build

After a great few years as a Stanton stockist and demo centre we are pleased to announce the all new Stanton Bike “next gen” range of frames. The all new Switchback, Slackline and Sherpa next gen frame are nearly with us and will ready to roll the 1st week in July.

Stanton Bikes Sherpa Next Gen frame:

Stanton Bikes Sherpa Next Gen frame

Stanton Bikes Sherpa Next Gen frame

Description: The Stanton Sherpa 853 Next Gen is the answer yo your requests! The original design ethos of the Sherpa was to create a comfortable, springy, all day frame thats happy riding monstrously large loops in the Peak District yet when you’re tired and flagging and situations get steep and technical the frame has the geometry to inspire confidence and help you ride it out. The Next Gen version is a development of this platform, taking in to consideration the requests of customers and the markets advances. Designed around the 29” wheel and the 27.5+” wheel platform, the Sherpa 853 Next Gen has our custom designed drive-side Yoke that creates space in the chain stays to accommodate large volume, deep tread 2.4” tyres on 29” wheels or full 3” Plus tyres on super wide plus 27.5” rims while not effecting the short 435mm chain stay length as we refuse to compromise our class leading geometry! The Sherpa frame is a serious mile-muncher, great for all day and weekend epics, while having geometry calculated to win races. However when things get steep and Tec don’t underestimate this frame, with its 435mm chainstays and 67.5-degree head angle (in the sag of a 100mm fork) this frame will have you attacking the trail as it has the manoeuvrability and playful nature you’ve come to expect and love from Stanton frames. We chose Reynolds 853 tubing for this frame, including the new Reynolds 853 DZB triple-butted down tube and top tube. The frame also features a Reynolds 631 44mm head tube, while the seat and chainstays are Reynolds 525. The 853 tubing was selected for its unbelievable strength to weight ratio and super trail-smoothing abilities. The tubing’s internal and external diameters are carefully selected to provide flex and stiffness in the frame where needed. The result? A frame that’s lightweight and comfortable for all-day rides but that has the strength and directness you want for technical riding and inch-perfect cornering. Frame Sizing:

  • 17″- 5’5″-5’10″
  • 19″- 5’10″-6’2″
  • 21″- 6’2″-6’6″

Stanton Bikes Switchback Next Gen frame:

Stanton Switchback Next Gen frame

Stanton Bikes Switchback Next Gen frame

Description: The Switchback 631 Next Gen is the answer to your requests! The original aim of the Switchback was to design the most playful natured and confidence inspiring aggressive frame that we possibly could. The 2nd Gen version is a development of this platform, taking in to consideration the requests of customers and the markets advances. Designed around the 27.5” wheel and the 27.5+” wheel platform, the Switchback 631 Next Gen has our custom designed Yoke that creates space in the chain stays to accommodate large volume, deep tread 2.4” tyres on 27.5” wheels or 2.8” Plus tyres on super wide plus 27.5” rims while not effecting the incredibly short 415mm chain stay length as we refuse to compromise our class leading geometry’s! The frame is available in both regular and long in both the 16.5” and 18” frames. It also has our custom designed swopouts, giving you the ability to run 12×142, standard QR or single speed. The 415mm chain stay length plus the bottom bracket height, head angle and reach measurement gives you an amazingly responsive and agile ride. This frame rails corners and descends like no other hardtail on the market, expect to leave the abstract idea that “you’ll be faster on a full sus” behind you, the new Switchback will have you leaving your full-sus in the garage! The geometry of the Switchback 631 Next Gen has been optimised to help the rider feel confident on difficult, technical Enduro style terrain, while giving the ideal riding position to express your style and flare on the trail. The frame is designed to suit modern fitments such as a Stealth Dropper compatible seat tube and a 44mm head tube for tapered steerer compatibility and full internal top tube routing. Frame Sizing:

  • 16.5″ Reg- 5’6″-5’10″
  • 16.5″ Long- 5’9″- 5’11″
  • 18″ Reg- 5’10″- 6’1″
  • 18″ Long- 6’0″- 6’4″

Stanton Bikes Slackline Next Gen frame:

Description: The Slackline Next Gen is the answer to your requests. The Slackline frame has had a total overhaul and is now our new Trail specific 27.5” frame.   The design ethos of the new Slackline was to get that geometric fine line of perfect ‘slack’ angles and a great all day ride feel, while taking in to consideration the requests of customers and the markets advances. Designed around the 27.5” wheel and the 27.5+” wheel platform, the Slackline has our custom designed drive-side yoke that creates space in the chain stays to accommodate large volume, deep tread 2.4” tyres on 27.5” wheels or 2.8” Plus tyres on super wide plus 27.5” rims while not effecting the playfully short 427mm chain stay length as we refuse to compromise our class leading geometry’s! In the Slackline we’ve created a comfortable, springy, all day frame thats happy riding large loops at trail centres, slaying berm after berm and flowing the trail like you’re on rails. We chose Reynolds 853 tubing for this frame, including the new Reynolds 853 DZB triple-butted down tube and top tube. The frame also features a Reynolds 631 44mm head tube, while the seat and chainstays are Reynolds 525. The 853 tubing was selected for its unbelievable strength to weight ratio and super trail-smoothing abilities. The tubing’s internal and external diameters are carefully selected to provide flex and stiffness in the frame where needed. The result? A frame that’s lightweight and comfortable for all-day rides but that has the strength and directness you want for technical riding and inch-perfect cornering. Frame Sizing:

  • 16.5″- 5’5″-5’10″
  • 18″- 5’10″-6’1″
  • 19.5″- 6’1″-6″

Trek Fuel EX 27.5 PLUS- EX 5- EX 8- Ex 9.8- Trek Bikes- Dealer- Stockist- Demo- 0% Finance- Free Delivery

Trek’s most popular trail bike gets more capable with more travel and bigger tyres. We give you the all new Trek Fuel EX Plus range- EX 5, EX 8 and EX 9.8

Trek Fuel EX 9.8 27.5 PLUS

Trek Fuel EX 9.8 27.5 PLUS

The all-new Fuel EX 27.5 Plus brings plus-sized fun to full-suspension capability with extra tyre volume for greater traction.

For the all-new Fuel EX 27.5 Plus, Trek have re-engineered their hugely popular Chupacabra tyre to a lighter and more nimble 27.5 x 2.8˝ size. Paired with a 40mm rim, this setup strikes the fine balance between fat-bike traction and trail-bike agility. Novice and intermediate riders will instantly feel the increased stability and confidence-inspiring traction on any trail. Advanced riders will find themselves clearing more technical trail features than ever thanks to the added grip in extreme situations like ultra-steep blown-out climbs and rowdy off-camber roots.

To go along with all the extra fun, Trek have added more travel to the Fuel EX family, with 130mm out back and 140mm up front. Of course, Trek still use their proven suspension technology, including ABP, Full Floater, and RE:aktiv for a chassis that’s ready for the plus-sized party. Boost hub spacing makes room for those meaty tyres and allows Trek to keep the chainstays to a playful 433mm.

The new frame features a slightly slackened geometry and is available in Alpha Platinum Aluminum and OCLV Mountain Carbon. Fuel EX 27.5 Plus also features Trek’s all-new Straight Shot downtube for increased stiffness. This is the stiffest Fuel EX frame Trek have ever made, and it won’t flinch when you charge through technical terrain. For an added measure of protection, Trek developed “Knock Block” steerer stop, which keeps the fork crown or handlebar controls from hitting the frame. The new Fuel EX Plus frames come with Trek’s Control Freak internal routing system for a versatile, easy to use setup, while Mino Link allows riders to further fine-tune their geometry.

Intense Cycles- Spider 275C- Intense Spider 275C- 2016- 2017- Stockist- Dealer- Demo Centre

Intense Cycles are hotting up their 2016 lineup with the arrival of the all new Spider 275 carbon. The new Spider 275c is the ultimate in U.K trail bike technology, with 130mm travel and a 67 degree head angle the Spider can handle anything you can throw at it.

The all new Intense Cycles 275 carbon

The all new Intense Cycles 275 carbon

After a recent trip to Bike Park Wales shop manager and general handy rider Will had the chance to take the Spider 275c out on the trails. Here is what he had to say:

“The Spider 275c is a whole new level of trail bike. Usually riding a 130mm travel bike on an uplift you feel pretty under biked but the Spider felt bottomless in it’s travel and tracks the trail like a 160mm bike, short aggressive sprints are attacked with ease and technical rock gardens are chewed up by the new I-Box suspension platform. The boost back end adds stiffness and rigidity to the bike and in turn makes it feel extremely planted. All in all I thought the bike was great and can’t wait to ride it again”.

Features:

  • Adjustable travel: 4.5” to 5” (115mm to 130mm)
  • 27.5” wheel size
  • Integrated Boost 148 x 12 dropouts
  • SL Spider is 300g lighter with titanium hardware, high modulus carbon fiber and carbon top link
  • Internal cable routing
  • Internal seat tube cable routing for dropper posts
  • Monocoque front triangle
  • H2O bottle fitment
  • Downtube and chain stay flack guard protection
  • Tapered head tube
  • Direct mount front derailleur
  • Angular contact/collet bearing system with replaceable grease zerks
  • Sizes S,M,L,XL

Bike are available from mid May and pre-orders are being taken at the moment. Here at Blazing Bikes we are a strong believer that to get the most from a bike a custom build is the way to go, you get the spec you want and components that you know and trust. For a full quotation feel free to email will@blazingbikes.co.uk or call 01694 781515.

“Light enough to be raced cross-country, yet capable enough to tackle seriously technical trails. Intense just popped out the proverbial unicorn”. Pink Bike
